    There are all sorts of ways to make them useless. Here's one of the more common ones:

    But at least it's approximately right.

    Yep. As you said, that's why surgeons wear masks.

    They are completely useless no matter how they are being worn, with the possible exception of making the gullible feel like they are doing 'something'.

    I was referring more to the new mask-nazi abominations.

    The only (few) children we see harmed here are a few who had a compromised immune system to begin with.

    If the news media had treated any other major flu season (which has many deaths that are not normally sensationalized and reported) they could have shut down your country years ago. Power grabbers have studied this phenomena and planned on how to implement it in controlling the masses to stifle freedom and to gain power. Lots of Americans are now playing along with the game in hopes that after the next election someone is going to rip the curtain back and allow us to see the man hiding behind it. Many think its a joke that it is. A joke on the misinformed.

    And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed
    at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at
    work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is
    taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom
    the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy
    by the splendor of his coming."
    2 Thes 2:6-8​

    Even though the Antichrist is not yet in control, his backing system has always been with us, trying to work ways to make ready for a one world government. Its one reason why socialists hate Christianity so much.

    I know you are arguing that face masks can be of benefit in public places but you begin by conceding they are useless in sterile enviroments. Please think carefully before conceding on such a point.

    They are not "useless for sterile enviroments" - if a doctor is doing eye, nose, and throat examines and a patient coughes involuntarily, then it seems reasonable to me to think there is a risk of being exposed to a higher concentration of droplets because of close proximity. A mask would not protect the doctor completely but it would perhaps lessen the risk of high exposure. Surgeons and theatre staff mainly use them to absorb any spray from their mouth when talking during surgery, as they have to talk while operating. The logic of "not perfect, therefore useless" in this instance, is flawed, and even dangerous. These attacks on the usefulness of facemasks is idiotic at best and at worst a highly dangerous trend There's no big deal with wearing a mask on public transport, some people talk as if its the sign of the beast - in fact during an epidemic if in close quarters with a lot of people it makes a lot of sense.

    The primary way the coronavirus spreads is from person to person by respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. Face masks, however, can block these droplets. They act as a barrier to keep virus-containing particles from escaping an infected individual and landing on another person, explains Ron Waldman, M.D., professor of global health at the George Washington University (GWU) Milken Institute School of Public Health

    A new simulation from researchers at Florida Atlantic University illustrates just how effective face coverings can be in reducing the number of droplets that are dispersed into the air and the distance they travel. Without a mask, droplets traveled more than 8 feet. A bandanna cut the distance to 3 feet, 7 inches, and a folded cotton handkerchief reduced that distance even more, to 1 foot, 3 inches, the researchers note.

    "There's no question; it's indisputable that wearing even a cloth face covering cuts down substantially on the amount of virus that's shared by an individual,” Waldman says.

    5 Reasons You Should Wear a Face Mask to Lower Risk

    My only concern is shortages for frontline staff. I think in some parts of the world, supply of face masks and PPE was protected by law, so that places were they are needed most ie. Hospitals, Doctors surgeries etc., would not have to go begging. That ought to be the way of things - protected supplies so there is adequate supply for frontline staff.

    Even though cloth masks can provide a little protection for the one wearing them, the main point is that it limits the infection spreading by limiting droplets from the person that is wearing it.

    So we wear the cloth masks to protect others, not to protect us. We are protected by their masks and they are protected by our masks. Not 100%, but significantly.

    What do you think the "gates of hell" means in that verse, and why can they not stop the church?

    In agreeance with you, but they are effective in clinical enviroments also.

    It's Jesus who builds the church. It's his, the church can't be stopped. The"gates of hell" from the text I believe means the enemies of God man or demonic

    Doctors and all healthcare workers today wear masks
    when dealing with infectious patients 24 hours a day.

    It works for them and your argument holds no water.

    And nobody believes that who actually knows about results.
